    I’ve used many other mechanical pencils before and always battled with the lead constantly breaking. This isn’t a problem with the Delguard. From an environmental perspective this is great as there’s no wastage with the pencil. Equally it saves me money as I buy less lead.

    My only request to Zebra would be for a version made with a metal body.

    This pencil is very useful. It helps me with all sorts of writing and drawing. The only problem is that it takes too long for a new stick of lead to come out.

    My fav mechanical pencil. Notes about it: https://unsharpen.com/pencil/zebra-delguard-mechanical-pencil/

    I cannot figure out how to add more lead. I pulled out the eraser, which retracts when held upright, and there is no hole for the lead to go in. Can someone tell me how to reload?

    Wwll, after spending $13 for 2, I think they are a rip off. In my opinion most mechanical pencils will not break the lead if you only advance them 2x. I wondered how they could make unbreakable lead. They didn’t. The lead is still the same breakable lead falsly advertised.

    I broke the lead 2 times within the first minute of using this pencil. To be honest I wasn’t trying to break it , I was just writing a bit harder than normal. I wouldn’t label this product as “unbreakable lead” more appropriate might be “less breaking lead”

    Disappointed, won’t buy again.

    Love this pencil. I work in an aircraft maintenance career, and am pretty hard on my pens/pencils. This pencil held up rather well, survived near a year so far, just need new lead and eraser.

    The only reason I’ve rated it four stars instead of five is because there’s room to improve. I would really love to see a stainless steel version of this pencil, to match my just as rugged F-701. That would make this pencil perfect.

  9. Rated 2 out of 5


    I really loved this mechanical pencil, since I tend to break the lead a lot. But a while after I ran out of the lead that came with, I became unable to “click” the lead out and have to insert it from the tip to use it. Besides being inconvenient, this means I waste a lot of lead because I have to throw away the lead that is too short to write with.
    I’m not sure if I should attempt to buy a new one or go for a different pencil…

    I would like to fine a Zebra twist ball point pen with red & black ink. I have several old zebra that I used around 2004 on several construction jobs in the USA. I have been looking for this pen type since then with no luck. I think your company has stopped making this pen. I know you still make combo’s. I would like to buy any old stock that may be available like the one I have. The pen had a smooth rubber cover and came in blue, red & black (I have black) Please help me .

    Wow this pencil and company is a blast! First of all, this company has the best customer support. I had a fews questions and they contacted me in less than 24 hours. Furthermore, this pencil solved one of my biggest issues with a mechanical pencil…lead breakage. This pencil truly works and when I click the button to 1-3 times, the pencil protects the lead from breaking from any angle. Being a student this pencil helped me out even more because on a test or when my teacher blasted through topics, I did not have time for broken lead. Furthermore, the pencil’s design looks and feels amazing. The pencil’s grip makes it easy to hold and the small erasers makes erasing so precise. Overall I rate this product and customer support a 5/5!

    It’s a really cool pencil but I just can’t figure out how to refill it. I searched it up on YouTube and no results came out. I tried several methods but I ended up having no lead in the pencil. I can’t write with it anymore

    This is a cool mechanical pencil.I’ll be on 10th grade this month(our classes starts in June sadly…)I always use normal pencil because it’s really hard to use the mechanical ones because the lead always break.on the other hand the normal pencil makes my hand really dirty(i am left handed) and sometimes it smudges.I am so excited when my mom gave me this, she like buying things online(random ones)she didn’t even know that this is a mechanical pencil haha.I’ve got the black one in a japanese packaging, i love the packaging honestly i like unique packagings it makes the product more amazing. I just hope that when i already used all the lead i will find refill pack or something that can be used with this cause I live in the Philippines and I think this thing will be hard to find…

    This is by far one of the best designs for mechanical pencils ever. I am a heavy handed writer while taking notes and was going through lead quite frequently. Now that I have tried the Zebra Delguard I am sold for life. I was using the Pentel Quicker Clicker as my go to pencil for class but now the Zebra Delguard has taken its place. Thank you 🙂

    I bought this mechanical pencil but i dont like it . I dont feel comfortable while writng with it and my hand gets tired . I think it is because this pencil is a little bit thick and also its round form isnt comfortable.

    I love this pen, the lead protection system works better than advertised. The only issue I have with it is the plastic is easily scratchable, leaving some nasty white lines, I’d love to see a delguard pencil made out of metal like the M-701.

  28. Rated 2 out of 5


    I have had issues using this pencil since I first ran out of the initial lead that came in it. I refilled it, with appropriate lead, and it won’t “click” out, no matter how long I tried. I tried placing more in thinking I didn’t refill enough… but I get nothing. I can’t empty the lead, I can’t advance it. I can’t use the pencil. It was phenomenal before it ran out.

    It’s a fantastic mechanical pencil,although I would prefer a wider barel due to my big hands.
    I see in Ebay there are 0,3 and 0,7 leads compatible versions of the Delguard, but I don’t see those options in your website. Are those fakes or autentic Zebra-made pencils? a Delguard 0.3 would be fantastic.

    Can we use different brand of leads for this pencil?

    • Michael Wacewicz (verified owner)

      Hi Rachel. While the DelGuard brand of lead is recommended due to it being more pristine than other lead, you can use different brand of lead for this pencil.

  31. Rated 3 out of 5


    I really like the pencil and the DelGuard system but I hate that the eraser doesn’t have any clamp or anything to allow you to extend it. Since it only uses erasers without the metal clamp, you can only use around 1/5 of the eraser before you must replace it.

    I am a mechanical pencil junky and at first was disappointed that I had to order it and wait. I ordered two of them and accidentally ordered two of the #7 size lead pencils but absolutely love them, I own almost every type of mechanical pencil out there and so far the Zebra Delguard is the best out there! Just wish I would have orderd one of them as a #5.

  36. Rated 5 out of 5


    I used to use another popular ink-advance pencil, but when I went to replace it, the new one was absolute junk. The lead kept breaking. Then I switched to DelGuard. First off, the mechanism works great. Lead advance is smooth, and I have yet to break a lead. I also like the innovative lead enough to drive 40 miles to the Japanese bookstore to buy refills rather than using standard leads. However, I did try one other brand as an experiment and the mechanism still works well. This is now my go-to 0.5 pencil. I also like the design and the black color as it looks scientific and professional.

  37. Rated 3 out of 5


    Initially, I want to thank Japanese innovation because of this lead unbreakable mechanical pencil. This is lovely but if the material was metal instead of plastic it would be perfect. I give 3 stars to this innovative product and I hesitate to give 5 because I don’t like its figure. Although I prefer metal, but it’s not even made of high-grade plastic and it does not have a charming appearance. I hope that this innovation use in a glamorous metal mechanical pencil.

      Hi Zulaa. Our DelGuard Mechanical Pencil lead is unbreakable as long as you don’t advance the lead by three “clicks.” To refill the lead, all you have to do is take out the eraser and insert more lead!

    I love these pencils. I ordered one for my five year old daughter to prevent her from taking my Bic mechanical pencils and it’s perfect for her. I ended up buying 6 more off of Amazon in both .3mm and .5mm size for myself. These feel great in my hands and as I tend to grip my pencils tightly, I don’t get as much pain in my fingers. I will never go back to using Bic again.

    I bought this pencil in hopes that it would work and the lead would not break. The pencil has never worked once since I purchased it. I should receive another pen of equal value– like two M-301 mechanical pencils. I contacted Zebra and did not receive a reply. Hmm! Maybe I need to buy my pencils elsewhere! I am still hoping to receive a reply and for Zebra to correct this issue by providing me with two M-301 mechanical pencils. Guess we’ll see if they respond.

    Great Mechanical Pencil. Purchased from Office Depot here in Baton Rouge,LA. I asked the manager why I couldn’t find extra refill lead. His response was that they were discontinuing the pen. He didn’t know why. Where do you find the Lead and Erasers?

    Really like the pencil, but I am so bummed, the barrel at the textured grip cracked vertically (perpendicular to the threads). When I advance the lead I have to keep pushing the barrel back on. Wish it wasn’t plastic

    I am a math teacher and have tried different brands of mechanical pencil. This is by far the best i have ever used. Great product. I have recommended it to other teachers on my staff.

    Remarkably different. Can be used with different writing pressures to vary the intensity of the written line. So far, I have not broken the writing tip. Also, with the new kind of lead in this pencil, writing does not smear and is also cleanly erasable. I am an old time pencil user and find the DelGuard an advancement in the technology of mechanical pencils. Very pleased and highly recommended.
